Are Digital Product Mockups the Key to Higher Conversions?

Today, we’re diving into a game-changer that’s going to sprinkle some serious magic on your marketing efforts – digital product mock-ups.


Forget the bland stock photos; we’re talking about the secret sauce to captivate your audience and boost your conversions like click-throughs, sign-ups, and even sales!

The Influence of Visuals in Marketing

Visual content is the awesome-sauce that adds flavor to your online marketing content. People are visual creatures, and a well-crafted image can speak volumes.


Whether it’s a vibrant Instagram post, a clever meme, or an informative infographic, visuals speak a universal language that transcends the barriers of text.


That’s the magic of visuals—they’re a shortcut to understanding what something is about in a mere second or two. They break down complex ideas, evoke emotions, and can help make your brand stick in people’s minds.


A compelling image can convey more than a thousand words, and in a crowded online space, it’s the visual appeal that often sets you apart. The challenge lies not just in being seen, but in being remembered.

Moving Beyond Stock Photos

While free stock and low cost photos can be a god send to solopreneurs in marketing, as you grow your brand their limitations become increasingly apparent.


Generic images lack the authenticity and uniqueness that resonates with today’s discerning consumers. As entrepreneurs, coaches, and course creators, your offerings are unique — shouldn’t your visuals be too?

Understanding Digital Product Mock-ups

Digital mock-ups offer a stylised overview or presentation of your products or services in a customizable format.


Mockups like these are available as customisable templates, where you can insert your desired graphics. Most also allow you to further customize them by adding text, changing fonts, colors and backgrounds.


Instead of showcasing your programs, offers, freebies and events with generic stock photos, using digital mock-ups can make your audience feel like they’ve stumbled across a treasure chest of value (ideally full of solutions to their problems!).


That’s the magic of digital product mockups – they help transform your offers from ‘meh’ to ‘wow’!


When mockups are done right, they become like a magnet to your audience. They give your products and services a serious visual upgrade and basically make everything look awesome!


Let’s look at an example…

Now, I’m not saying there’s anything wrong with the image for A (except maybe the overused stock photo!) and lifestyle images like these do humanize your marketing.


However, with that said the conversion data shows – graphics featuring mockups like image B tend to get more clicks (or sign-ups) than with images like A.

The Power of Digital Product Mockups

Recently, I’ve been testing these types of mockups on my freebie landing pages, ad graphics and Pinterest pins.


And in all cases, my conversion rates noticeably improved!


Meaning I got more pin clicks, ad click-throughs, and sign-ups on my free business resources opt-in landing pages.


Right now, you might be asking, “So why do they perform better?”


Let’s look at how digital product mockups help to boost conversions.


Mockups give your potential customers a visual overview of your offer, which helps builds trust and makes them more confident in the value of what you’re offering.
